What is the difference between Splunk 7.x Fundamentals Part 2 (IOD) and Splunk 7.3 Fundamentals Part 2?
I want to pursue the Splunk Enterprise Certified Admin Certification . . . but not sure which course is next in the sequence. Thank you for your help.

Probably the same content but the first one is IOD = instructor on demand (see https://www.splunk.com/pdfs/training/SplunkEDUSubscriptionsIOD_Feb2019.pdf )
IOD mean you can do it self paced over 30 days and when ever you have.a question, you can contact a instructor on demand and chat with him (not sure on what hours/days but I think there is a pool of instructors for this)
(versus a classic virtual or on site class where the class has a exact schedule and every trainee is doing it at same time)

so I would just choose the one that best fit how you want to learn.

@maraman_splunk and @woodcock, thanks for responses. I'm leaning towards the IOD version so I can do it on my own time. I just want to be sure the content is not outdated. I've emailed education_amer@splunk.com and still waiting for their response. I also noticed that Splunk 7.x Fundamentals Part 2 (IOD) is a course while Splunk 7.3 Fundamentals Part 2 is a Training. Does anyone know if the two classes are up-to-date content-wise?
